Ha Full Disk 6th August

Post by marktownley » Mon Aug 06, 2018 3:52 pm

Another day that is lovely clear skies till sunrise then clouds set in till nearly midday :( Only meant enough time for a quick full disk with the DS50.

Nice full disk, Mark. Opportunities are getting fewer and further between now the weather seems to be changing back to increased cloud and rain.

This nicely done FD is the most active FD since about a month.

If Alexandra is right and this is not the minimum yet, this is a bad news. We will need to wait long with very low activity sun.

I'd prefer that Mark's guess is correct and that we already saw the very beginning of the new cycle #25.

Thanks everyone!

It's all just old decaying durge from previous rotations, nothing new in the equatorial band.
